Food & Rural Affairs (Defra) through the Illegal Wildlife Trade Challenge Fund.

commit resources and introduce innovative technology to help end the scourge of international wildlife

TRACE is an international NGO that aims to promote the use of forensic science in biodiversity
conservation and the investigation of wildlife crime.
TRAFFIC, the wildlife trade monitoring network, is the leading non-governmental organization working

sustainable development. TRAFFIC works closely with its founding organizations, IUCN and WWF, making a
critical contribution to the achievement of their conservation goals.
